The Old Days
Hearing a beautiful melody and a classy arrangement, no problem with the production Dan, easy vote. Gibbo
What a beaut! Thisi s remarkable, I think the sound is just lush, Your unmistakeable ability to bring such a depth of emotion to a piece is truly wonderful (and something I don't think you know you do!!) lovely!
What production issues would those be Dan? Sheer class as always - a piece of accomplished musical whimsy on yet another beautiful summer morning here.
Dan, I don't remember this one. I think the production is fine. Uplifting/happy melody which is not something I'm used to hearing from you. (That's not a bad thing) and i'm not complaining but many of your songs hit me as sad.. Just my take on your work.. Who knows you might just be the happiest guy in the world :) No matter I love this song Dan and I thank you for sharing it with us.
Dan I hear you...no sense wasting precious time on production techniques trying to improve this! Wonderful melody! You produce music that is so soothing and luxurious that it is easy to find yourself literally "bathing" in the sound! Thumbs!
So easy on the ears, light and carefree. I like the elements of ragtime that crop up now and then, but hey, I like it all. Nice one, Dan.
Let the engineering and production details go until you get signed :) This is awesome, just the way you have it here. This is Dan Michaelson sitting down and playing his heart out...a lounge somewhere...you playing....a drink nearby, partly consumed already...loosens the emotions just enough...and we are there soaking it all in. This is you at your best, I think, Dan. A drink of delicious...just delightfully easy going down.
Dan, Thank you fr your recent comment. This is sublime and I wish I had your deft touch! Everything always smells of roses. A dreamy interlude with class:)
Dan, it sounds just fine. When you play, the world stops.
Hi Dan, This sounds perfect to me, and your playing is top-notch, its a beautiful, life-enhancing track, I love it!
Howdy! A Southern California artist living in Texas. Go figure. Make em up as I go along. Charter member of the pray and play theory of music...;-). I have been extremely fortunate to have some of the best artists on this site take some of my musical creations and take them to "a whole nother level" . The following artists have been kind enough to do this.
Essence, Saphfire, Dawn Sinclair, Carol Sue Kirkpatrick, Amy Caldwell, Vince Fedele (aka Riddle, A Brighter Day, Vin), AndyF (aka Andrew Foyston), Tony Miller, James (Andy) Oakwood, Joseph Rodriguez, Lodato (aka Rich Lodato), Peter Vines, AntonH, Boojolay (David Smith) and the irrepressable David Joel Carter
This just in! Dan Michaelson has nothing special going on in his life. It is pretty much Standard Operating Procedure with a few moments of ecstacy and terror thrown in so he doesn't get too bored with the whole thing!
This piece is as most of what I hear from Dan. Ambient by nature on the borderline of new age but really ambient as the passion involved is so thought provoking. The quality of sounds and just enough of structure to keep you guessing where it's going next at the same time, the flow doesn't keep you waiting but going along for the journey. That's magic. Dan has that aplenty and just about anyone wh
Essence is a very talented lady from MP3 Unsigned who I have reviewed once or twice, notably on Towers Are Gone (July 2008) a marked departure from her usual style, and her first (I think) collaboration with Dan Michaelson, an American keyboard player and songwriter. He supplied the music and she supplied the vocals and lyrics and - despite it being in a genre I don't normally care for - I found
What a beauty music...I can see the princess on his room...and walking over all of her palace...a beauty, and magical descriptive music...rated!
Dan Michaelson describes himself as "truly an amatuer". For reasons none other than he is not fully conversant with the mechanics of musical theorem. I suspect as a result of that some people feel the need to explain themselves and somehow belittle themselves when faced with the critics imaginary lack of theory beating stick. What i mean by this is that nobody should call themselves an amatuer, ci
